Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
COLIN COWHERD is currently the host of The Herd with Colin Cowherd on ESPN Radio and ESPNU. He is also a former cohost of the show SportsNation on ESPN2.
The author made funny, wise and intriguing book about the modern sports, one of those that you can easily read a several times and every time enjoy some occasionally missed detail.
Colin started his book by telling about the situations from his childhood when his sports heroes showed unworthy of their image displayed in the public.
That made him the person who use and trust his instincts, someone who want to get fuller, better, and the most time truer picture of popular athletes, from those that are served in the media.
He will start speaking about Major League Baseball, golf and Tiger Woods, basketball and James LeBron and some other sports and their heroes, making his book interesting even to those who are not fans of the sports.
While for those who are fully interested in sports, Colin Cowherd provided his different and brave views that are often not in line with the way that certain topics are treated in other media.
He manages to rise above the stories and myths that are offered to the general public and to provide the reader a sneak peek, a look beneath the surface of excellence by which popular athletes are usually marked and protected.
Overall, this is a well-made and entertaining book, a must-read for fans of Colin's radio shows but also book for readers interested in sports who want to read (sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but always thought-out) author's courageous addressing to some of the topics related to lives of popular sportsmen.

A lot of the chapters in this book feel like hot takes from his show, which is is no way a bad thing. He presents a lot of view points that I had never considered before in an entertaining and honest way. He points out some of the idiosyncrasies in sports and life and does so in a fun way.
I liked his point about the difference in baseball players and football players. Baseball has morphed into a club team, traveling circus with players only worrying about their own stats. A tiny percentage of baseball players have college degrees and most move around so often that they don't know the joy of playing for a city or team that comes with growing up playing football. There's no AAU or traveling teams (although 7 on 7 and other camps have gotten popular the last few years) and football is all about team and community and all have some college and many more are graduated. Baseball contracts are guaranteed and football is not. It breeds a more humble athlete.
I really like this book and even used some of his chapters for topics with friends and family members.
